3 1/2 Stars
I present to you reader, with a mix of shame, embarrassment, and bemusement, my whole-hearted endorsement of the Ninja Turtles reboot. I had been putting off viewing this update because of my affinity with the source material. The Turtles were one of my favorite line of toys, cartoons, and movies in my childhood years. I didn’t think of myself as prepared for the retelling, but to my astonishment the creators got everything right, from the small details of behavior, to wardrobe choices. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is as exhilarating and technically sophisticated as the first Transformers movie, given a glossy sheen and sporting top-notch visual effects Turtles is first-rate family entertainment.
